Pusateri’s (Avenue Road)

Toronto, Ontario

The Phoenix Arises from the Ashes

At the birthplace of the first Pusateri’s store, an ambitious renewal project was undertaken following a devastating fire. Considered as the company’s flagship location, the new store design exploits the building’s two-level height with a dramatic open volume at the epicenter of the space above the demo kitchen. In typical Pusateri’s tradition, only the best-in-class gourmet products grace the store’s shelves and displays.

fun fact(s)

Prior to the fire, the store aesthetic was at the opposite end of the spectrum with wrought-iron details and intricately carved wood furniture.
